Another great issue from everyone involved!
Following the events of last issue, with an officer sneaking up Sarah we find out that the officer, a woman named Annie, is also Sarah's wife. They're a married couple and they have a discussion about Sarah who voices her opinions regarding the Elle case. They eventually decide to not talk about it anymore and order sushi. Meanwhile, at the hospital, Elle is walking around in the form of the Spanish man called Esteban. This causes a stir, even as the Crenshaw (the man who had the accident) arrives in critical condition. Eventually, we learn that Elle's "possession" is temporary and special and this makes all the other vegetables jealous and angry. She attemps to get back into her body through the same way - but it doesn't work. An invisible field forces her away. While back at Crenshaw's building we see his assistant trying to download important files on Elle that he (and others) need.
But before he can finish downloading, the building is blown up by a mysterious man in communication with the assistant, Miles. He manages to escape just in time.
And another clue as to who our hooded figure may be, as we get a scene involving Jo and Dane, Elle's friends. Jo finds Dane arriving, dark hood and black gloves, surprised to find that he wasn't there before. Apparently, Dane had already done his job. Suspicious, or what, amiright? On top of that, Edward Senior is grieving over his daughter's injury - or perhaps he is feeling guilty over something he's done? After Min, Elle's mother claims: "It's not as though there is any blood on our hands", Edward throws his drink away in fury and reflects (as he looks at Elle's ((maybe)) baby photo) and asks himself: "What have I done...?"
The issue ends with Crenshaw (the man who had the accident) finding Elle in the Garden saying: "It appears we have much to discuss."
WHOOOAAA! I really liked this issue. Some second issues don't manage to live up to the potential, or the hype of the first, but I think this one did. I enjoyed it as much and there are enough questions raised, once more, to feel that the story is really escalating and becoming more dangerous for everyone involved. We get new insights and clues as Brian Wood reminds us: EVERYONE IS A SUSPECT. NO ONE IS INNOCENT!
